    Production – Sonically DJ Breezy did well with the production as it’s simple to listen and doesn’t involve straining your ears to listen to what Joey B and Sarkodie rhymed despite being a party tune.

    Lyrics – I am yet to hear a record where Joey B doesn’t have anything interesting to say.

    These as simple everyday words Joey employed to stay relevant on a record with a BET award winner. Sarkodie was as comfortable as possible and reminds me of Sark’s  mixtape days.

    Songwriting – From the word go, the song title is profane and them employing humor to water down the whole Tonga word, I think they walked a slippery ground confidently with their creativity.

    Cultural Impact – It’s forward considering the effort Joey B and Sarkodie took to piece all these words together without making the song super profane like it’s title. They watered the title down to an all time low to make it pass for radio. 

    Hustle – Joey B has been hustling forward since Strawberry Ginger. He impressed on Vera, nailed the “I Like Girls” refix with Kwaw Kese, Asem and B.A.M. boss D Black. He did Cigarette and now Tonga…Tonga..Tonga…And it rhymes with corner…

    Swag – Take away all the music Joey B is nice and the ladies reciprocate the love he has for them by supporting his career thus far. He is creative at rhymes and makes the nonexistent rhymes, rhyme. Tonga rhymes with corner?
